On Saturday night, a CSU student, Michael J. Morgan, 20, and four others were involved in a rollover accident on an off-road trail. The Toyota 4-Runner swerved off of the trail in attempt to pass two other cars coming up the grade, according to several media reports.
Morgan, a sophomore construction management major from Minnesota, died in the accident after he was partially projected from the vehicle.
The driver, Robert Bowling, 21, was arrested for vehicular homicide and, according to various news reports, alcohol may have been a factor in the incident.
The other passengers in the vehicle were not seriously injured.
We would just like to send out our thoughts and prayers to friends, family and Morgan’s fraternity, Delta Tau Delta, brothers who are affected by the heartbreaking event.
For those students who have been deeply touchd by the events, the university is offering free counseling. We recommend and encourage each of you to take advantage of the important service the university is offering.
Morgan’s 20 years of life should be celebrated, talked about and honored. And, at a time like this, loved ones should gather and support each other, as no one else can understand the grief you all must be feeling.
